Backpack bags aren't just for those who carry a large number of discs during rounds, they are great for many reasons. Often, a backpack-style bag will offer additional carrying capacity for extra items like a spare layer in case it gets chilly, additional drinks, etc. The backpack bag is typically more form-fitting as well, which reduces the strain of carrying all that gear around the course. And, for older players or those with reduced mobility, backpack disc bags tend to be easier to pick up, since they often have a top handle and they're taller so you don't have to lean over as far. These are just a few of the many reasons to consider a back pack bag. Once you make the switch you probably won't regret it.
